I don't have any other words for this work but WOW! Tara Donovan rocks
the installation art. From fishing wire to plastic straws, her work is
stunning and will leave you asking the question–How?
Donovan's work uses everyday manufactured materials such as Scotch tape,
Styrofoam cups, and drinking straws to create large scale sculptures
that often have a biomorphic quality. Her sculptures must be assembled
and disassembled carefully, which sometimes involve an extremely
tedious process. With regards to her artistic process, Donovan
explained that she chooses the material before she decides what can be
done with it. She noted in an interview that she thinks "in terms of
infinity, of [the materials] expanding."
